TITLE: Champions #5
AUTHOR: Eve L. Ewing
ARTISTS: Bob Quinn, Federico Blee (Colorist), Clayton Cowles (Letterer). Cover by Toni Ifante
RELEASED: March 17, 2021

I got easily distracted by small things during this issue. While the storyline involving the government outlawing teenage superheroes is reaching a major turning point, I was focused on the fact that Amadeus Cho is called Brawn now. He went from the Totally Awesome Hulk to…Brawn? Lame.

Also, Viv Vision at one point calls out, “Champions Charge!” Also lame.

TITLE: Champions #4

Good issue, with Quinn and Blee killing it on the art. Champions has once again become one of my favorite books at Marvel.

Cyclops helps the team out in this issue. He’s an adult now, but remembers his time with the team, despite it taking place amidst weird X-Men time-traveling shenanigans. I’m not even going to try to figure that out…

The Champions have breakfast in this issue, and nobody makes a “Breakfast of Champions” joke? I mean, that one’s a lay-up, is it not?
